Stakeholder workshop and side-event at the UNCCD COP in Abidjan

On May 13 2022, AFAS co-organized a side-event on the 15th UNCCD Conference of Parties in Abidjan. Together with the CABES and LANUSYNCON programmes, we set up a well-attended roundtable in the African pavillion on the topic: “Managing Science-Policy-Practice Interfaces in the context of Land, Life, and Climate Change Legacy: Examples from Africa”.

The successful side-event was followed by a stakeholder consultation workshop on May 16 and 17. We invited representatives from ministries, embassies, NGOs and the business sector to the beautiful campus where our partner institution CEA-CCBAD (African Center of Excellence for Climate Change, Biodiversity & Sustainable Agriculture) is based. Through several interactive sessions, we introduced our work to these stakeholders and received valuable feedback and input for the development of our curriculum and research agenda.
